Now let’s talk about the best way to grill chicken! First, start with the right chicken. Many times you bring home chicken and it looks like it’s been pumped up on steroids and one breast could feed 3 people. This is because it’s often injected with salt water or chicken stock to appear bigger. When you grill these beastly breasts they end up burning on the outside before the inside gets cooked or they end up dry because you’ve had to cook them so long.

I always use Perdue’s Perfect Portions. They are normal sized chicken breasts that are individually packaged in a zip-top bag so you can choose how many you want to use at a time. They also freeze really well. Because they are natural sized chicken breasts they cook evenly and don’t burn before the insides are done. We just added a little of our favorite pork rub and grilled them on a low heat around 250 degrees. Low heat on your grill makes for grilled, not burnt, juicy chicken that is cooked all the way through. When the chicken was almost done we brushed on our favorite homemade BBQ sauceWhich Chicken should you buy to grill?
